A huge thank you to everyone who came to the launch for Tiny Acts of Love on 8 March. It was lovely to see so many friends there, and it was a very special night for me. Here are some photos...
This week, book blogger Janet Emson kindly asked me to write a piece for her website, From First Page to Last. In this, I reflect about the experience of become a becoming a debut author, including how it felt to stand up and speak at my first book launch! You can read it here.
I've also been busy writing elsewhere: a letter to my six-year old self for the 'Hello Me' column in the Courier, an article about work and motherhood for the Telegraph online, and a piece about the experience of going back to work after having a baby which was published in Best Daily online and the Daily Record - click on the links to read.
Thanks to everyone who has read, shared or commented on the articles as they've come out, and to everyone who has been reading Tiny Acts of Love. Some more reviews have come in, and you can read those here.
Meanwhile, the characters in Book Two have been waiting patiently, the last few weeks, while I've been caught up with the release of Tiny Acts of Love. Time to get back to them, I think. :-)
It's release day for Tiny Acts of Love! I can't believe we got here. What a wonderful feeling.
There's been a lot going on this week, including an exciting Fiction Addiction book tour which includes interviews, guest posts, reviews and a giveaway, open internationally, where you can win a paperback copy of the book.
As part of the tour, I've been talking about the inspiration behind Tiny Acts of Love over at book review site Beauty and the Armageddon.
And at Raven Reviews I've been talking about my writing process, how I get my ideas, and writing in coffee shops :-)
I was given the task of choosing a playlist for Tiny Acts of Love, which you can see over on A Spoonful of Happy Endings (together with a lovely review - thanks Jody!)
I did a guest blog for Jess at A Novel Thought, Jenna at Allthingsbookie and Nina at The Bookish Confections. This is called The What 'If?' Game and may interest anyone wondering whether Tiny Acts of Love is based on my own experiences!
Aside from the book tour, I was interviewed by Liz Wilkins on her website Liz Loves Books. Liz also did an amazing review which I'll post in the reviews section.
Today I was interviewed by Lucy Walton at Female First magazine, talking about, amongst other things, my own favourite tiny acts of love!
Also up today, you can read a piece I wrote about My Book Deal Moment over on book review site Novelicious. This lists 8 reasons why Tiny Acts of Love should never have been published!
And in case you missed it, I did another piece on Novelicious recently, talking about My Writing Room.
THANK YOU to everybody who has supported me on this amazing journey so far, whether by hosting a guest piece or feature, doing a review, Tweeting or Facebooking links, or (hooray!) buying the book!
There's more coming up over the next few days so I'll keep you updated!
